Abstract

Associations among childhood assault (rape, aggravated assault, or both) and indices of adult mental health (posttraumatic stress disorder, major depressive episode) were examined in a national probability sample of 4,008 (weighted) women. Relationships among assault characteristics and these adult mental health indices were also investigated. Findings suggested particularly deleterious effects for childhood aggravated assault and rapes that caused additional physical injury.
